[cheers and applause] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to
debate was over, mitt romney was the only contender with a reason to keep smiling. according to a cnn poll, 67% of adults thought romney won the debate compared to just 25% who picked the president. 46% of undecided voters in a cbs poll gave the win to romney to just 22% for mr. obama. nearly a third of the undecideds were undecided. romney's positive rating rose above 50% for the first time in this campaign in a reuters poll. the president's ratings stayed unchanged at 56%. romney stayed on the attack even though his positions were to be charitable and flatly untrue. here's some of what he said about his tax plan and the economy. >> romney: i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class but i'm not going to reduce the share of taxes paid by high income people. we have 23 million people out of work. or stop look for work in this country. >> eliot: here's how the obama campaig

be a positive for the president? or wednesday's debate where governor romney appeared to gain the upper hand? real clear politics keeping track of it all. tom, thank you very much. we have two conflicting numbers, the post debate romney surge and this morning the jobless number that looks like president obama is going to use on the campaign trail. which is more important to the membership? >>guest: that is a great question. the debate was important for the romney campaign. we have had bad job numbers now for months upon months leading up to this and they never affect the members. you can make the argument that despite the fact that rebound got a good jobs number, a good unemployment rate ticked down in the unemployment rate that may or may not impact the numbers. >> post debate there is indication, we have scott rasmussen coming up later talking about the polls, post debate happens now, it will show up in the numbers between now and the next couple of days. when did the post jobless numbers start to be polled and show up in the numbers? >>guest: well, we will have some people go in the field
recovery either. stuart: okay, governor romney in the debate looked right into the camera and he gave his five point plan. i'm sure you were watching, i'm sure you heard it. what do you think about his plan for growth, growing the economy? >> it's more than doable. in fact, you know, if you look, his effort to try to create 12 million new jobs, the truth is, if this president's recovery was just average, 4 million more people would be going to work rather than looking for work. if it had been a reagan level recovery, more than 6 million people would be going back to work. so, what governor romney is proposing as a recipe for economic growth, i think, not only will work, but will hit the numbers he believes it will. stuart: all right. kevin brady, republican congressman, thanks as always for joining us, thank you very much indeed, sir. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: i'm just going to repeat some of the numbers we received about an hour and five minutes ago. important numbers that are raising a lot of questions this morning. number one, the unemployment rate came down to 7.8%, number two, we

their first debate. today president obama will be campaigning in virginia and ohio. mitt romney is in virginia. governor romney boasted about his debate performance and told supporters he will take back the white house. but for the first time, romney backed away from his controversial remarks about the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes. he was asked what he would have said if that came up in the debate. >> clearly, in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> president obama campaigned in wisconsin, sharply criticizing romney's statements during the debate on tax cuts, education, and outsourcing as misleading to the middle class. the president had this to say about his opponent's plan for reducing the deficit. >> but i just want to make sure i got this straight. he'll get rid of regulations on wall street, but he's going to crac
? >> 14% is the number. 23 million is the number quoted by governor romney during the debate. it is a grim employment situation any which way you slice it. bill: but now you're still now below the big number. you're below 8%. so to the politics on this now? >> that is where some of the mistrust comes in. how convenient the rate drops below 8% first time in 43 months, five weeks before the election. there is some mistrust of these numbers along with the contradiction between 873,000 people found work, only 114,000 new jobs. mistrust of this report. bill: on that point it will be interesting to see how president obama plays this in fairfax, virginia later today. how mitt romney responds. he is in virginia, southwestern part of the state. also in florida. >> i suspect the president will play it big, we're going in the right direction. look at this 7.8%. how governor romney will respond i don't know. bill: stuart, 9:20 a.m.. this will pop up again. martha: let's get context of this. back in december 2007, when the recession began the unemployment rate was 5%. in october of 2009, that is the pe
: before the new jobs numbers, romney had been riding a wave of momentum after this week's debate. he even got a pass from the president who never mentioned romney's comments on the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes. >> there are 47% of the people who vote for the president no matter what. >> reporter: with an obama campaign ad still repeating those, romney tried to put an end to the controversy once and for all on fox. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds and thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i've said something that's completely wrong. >> reporter: romney heads next to florida where his economic message will still resonate. that state's unemployment rate while it has gone down in recent months is still well above the national average. wolf. >> jim acosta joining us, thanks very much. let's dig deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, this unemployment number, the new number, how important is it to each of these two candidates? >> w
from both sides have called a poor debate performance. and romney will attack the president's energy policies. >> with a second wind from the debate, romney is trying to distance himself from controversial comments caught on hidden camera. romney appeared on the sean hannity show on fox news last night and said his comments about the 47% of americans who don't pay income tax were, quote, just completely wrong. in that video, romney said 47% of americans consider themselves victims and don't take personal responsibility. he originally defended those comments. >>> there is anticipation ahead of september's jobs report. analysts are predicting the economy added 115,000 to 125,000 jobs last month. that's better than the disappointing 96,000 jobs added in august. the unemployment stands at 8.1%. >>> to a developing story. public health officials are rn wai warning hundreds of people in more than 20 states, including maryland and virginia, about a steroid contaminated and responsible for a deadly meningitis outbreak. the steroid was sent to 20 different facilities in nine different states,

governor romney in debate prep versus the choice of rob portman, the senator from ohio to play the president, i think if you look at senator kerry, i think his, my guess is that in prep he was acting like the mitt romney that they were expecting and never achieved that mode because -- >> rose: that is a good point. >> there is no reason to think you would face somebody like that, i think it was reinforced not just watching romney over months and months and in the debate representations i beat kerry was showing the side of rom think that would be easy pickings for the president. >> rose: looking at the content of the debate and the fact that president obama would make a point and then governor romney would come back and say, no, no, no that that's not what i favor. where are we on this content debate about the 5 trillion and what we ought to understand is the fact check and reality of the numbers? >> well, in any number of areas what governor romney has done as he said last night he laid out the broad principles but what he has done after laying out the broad principles he has g

decisive i think that pretty much any other debate than any of us here can remember. i thought gov. romney did a fabulous job on both the relative basis. comparing mitt romney with performances that we usually see, quite fabulous. on a nominal basis, he did very, very well. i think it is true to say president obama is a superior or turk. i think mitt romney is a better debater. romney, you know, we saw something that we had not seen in a long time. it occurred to me that this reminded me more of the mitt romney i met in 1994 when he was running for the senate and came by and met with me and was incredibly an impressive and analytical and fact driven and pragmatic. this was that guy, not so much the person who had been pretending to be an ideologue for the past few years. obama seemed to be like a team sitting on a lead. i would not have said smog it, i would have just said somebody who did not seem to be terribly hungry for it. -- i would not say smug, just somebody that was not hungry for it. i did not really big in these examples after, i do not particularly care for them. -- these insta
